Cat Blood Group Serology

In cats there are 3 blood groups: A, B and AB.
Group A is largely the most common while Group B is much less common. The AB group is very rare.
The geographical origin of the cats would also have an influence on the frequencies of the different blood groups.
The blood group is of genetic origin and is predominantly determined by the CMAH gene.

Which test to choose: blood group DNA or serology?

Your cat must be transfused

If your cat needs to be transfused, you must choose blood group serology to protect you from incompatibilities.

Your goal is breeding

If you are a breeder, you need to choose this blood group test by DNA in order to make the right breeding choices for your breeders. The serological blood test will not protect you from neonatal erythrolysis. There is also a specific blood group DNA test for Ragdoll.

Blood group and genotype matches

Blood Group (Serotyping)ABAB
Possible allelesA/AA/ABA/bAB/bb/bAB/AB
DNA mutation test b (Genotyping)non-b/non-bnon-b/non-bnon-b/bb/bnon-b/non-bnon-b/b

The A allele is dominant on the AB allele which is dominant on the b allele

Blood group and neonatal erythrolysis

Transfusing a group B cat with blood from a group A cat results in the death of the recipient after a few minutes causing acute haemolytic anemia.
Conversely, transfusing a group B cat with blood from a group A cat does not lead to such a important reaction: there is a decrease in the life of red blood cells.
